USA: Fugro Selected for Two Gas Hydrates Research Awards

The US Department of Energy has selected Fugro GeoConsulting Inc., for two research awards to advance understanding of resource-grade gas hydrates.

The first award is for developing plans for a pressure-coring program to sample the gas hydrates that were identified during a Department of Energy funded drilling expedition in the deep water US Gulf of Mexico in 2009. The second award is for developing methods and tools to better understand the gas hydrate reservoirs through seismic imaging and rock physics.

The research and planning will be done by gas hydrate specialists and engineers in Fugro’s Houston offices with collaboration from Fugro scientists and engineers in the Netherlands within a twelve month period in 2012 and 2013.
